The influx of immigrants and refugees with little or no previous formal education has made the investigation of English as a Second Language (ESL) literacy instructional techniques and methods a priority within the ESL professional field. The 2003-2004 resettlement of over 12,000, mostly preliterate, Somali Bantu refugees to the United States has become a focal point of the ESL literacy field. In this study, I investigate the past and present experiences of five Somali Bantu women refugees in...

The process of embedding, a term used in generative grammar to refer to a construction in which a sentence is included within another sentence, is examined as it occurs in Yoruba literature. Examples are drawn from Yoruba praise poetry, in both written and oral form and within Yoruba novels. Forms of embedding identified include those to draw attention to the subject of a poem, to digress from the main topic and provide brief relief from it, bring humor into a tense circumstance, and make...

Six months of observation--at two universities, at a drama festival, and with several independent theatre companies--form the basis for this evaluation of theatre in Kenya, Africa. While Kenyan dramas deal with a variety of themes, the majority are topical rather than universal in their treatment of issues. In many, the emphasis is on the supernatural and on the conflict between the old and new forms of religion. Although the positive influence of the British educational system is acknowledged,...

The policy of apartheid, until recently one of the dominant aspects of South African society, has caused grievous harm to that nation's non-white population, especially black women and children. Most black children have not grown up in stable, two-parent families due to migrant labor policies and low wages. Housing, health care, nutrition, and educational opportunity in black communities is inferior to that in White areas due to the restrictions imposed on Blacks by apartheid. Black children...
